About the series:
Committee of 100 has launched a thought leadership series in collaboration with leading universities and think tanks across the country that will focus on key topics that the U.S. and China have a joint interest in. The goal of the discussion series is to bypass the heated rhetoric of the moment and bring to bear the complexity and nuisances of common challenges facing the U.S. and China, and how each country might tackle the challenge differently in the long term.About the webinar:
With China being the first country to be struck by COVID and the U.S. being the country that suffered the most infections and death toll per capita, each country has been dealing with pandemic situation that is unique to their country. Gathering infectious disease experts from each country to discuss to discuss how the next thirty years might look like for pandemics, what they have learned from dealing with COVID-19 that will help us prepare for and prevent a devastating pandemic. This webinar is jointly organized by Committee of 100 and the China Research Center.
